You’ve heard it takes a village to raise a child. That can’t be truer for children who are being treated at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Dallas. Many of those children received nice surprises all thanks to donations from the young at heart.
Virginia Myers has a lifelong passion for collecting dolls that started as a young child with her first “Dream Baby” and blossomed in the 1970s with her first Sasha Doll. The 96-year-old grew her collection into the hundreds and even designed, sewed and sold clothes for the dolls for many years. At one point, she had one of the biggest collections of Sasha Dolls in the United States.
The love story of Jackie and Don Sebastian started when they were just 15 and 16 years old in Baton Rouge, LA when Jackie invited Don to her freshman class hayride and they shared their first kiss. Their love story spans more than six decades of career changes, traveling, and raising two children along the way.
After hearing the moving childhood story of concierge Annette Alvarez, residents and associates at HarborChase of the Park Cities (a community of luxury senior residences) decided to collect donations for children, tweens, and teens at the Scottish Rite Hospital.
Baby Boomers are getting older, and there’s no one-size-fits-all solution for their current or future housing needs. The active-adult, 55-and-over community has been popular with Boomers for years, but if their mobility is impaired or they develop other health issues, they may need to move to a senior-living community with multifamily housing and on-site health care services such as assisted living, memory care, and short- and long-term rehabilitation.
HarborChase of the Park Cities is opening the doors to its luxury senior community to give the public a chance to taste delicious pairings at its first-ever Taste of HarborChase: An International Food and Wine Tour.
The Sept. 16 event will take place from 1 to 4 p.m. at 5917 Sherry Lane.
